Abstract : During the three years of this grant, nine papers were published or accepted for publication in peer-reviewed journals. They covered the following topics: (1) potential vorticity dynamics, (2) baroclinic instability in the presence of forcing, (3) baroclinic wave structure and transitions, (4) the role of mountains in the evolution of mid-latitude synoptic disturbances, (5) complex principle component analysis, and (6) numerical techniques verses nonlinear analytic methods.
